if you can't see the mermaid charm, click on the photo to enlarge it
 Does this pretty little girl resemble a manatee to you?  Being a resident of Manatee County I don't like to say anything bad about our beloved sea creatures but I have to say I fail to see the resemblance between the two. 
I do love those huge mammals and frequently visit them at the aquarium.   I have yet to see one in the wild but when I do I'll be sure to report in if I mistake it for a mermaid.
Being the first week of the month there's a sketch challenge at Paper Pretties so if you have some free time check it out here
